Friday Foresight: Make Sure Your Workforce Is Trained!
Based on findings in the recently released ADP report, economists are reporting that the US labor market is improving. And when the labor market improves, increased business for organizations is soon to follow. With these facts in mind, here is your Friday Foresight.
Make sure your workforce is trained!
Why is this important? It’s important because your workforce will need key skills to handle the increase in business.
For example, as business increases, staff members are called upon more and more to utilize their skills in key areas like communication, teamwork, negotiation, problem solving, decision making, creative thinking, business writing, and a host of other areas.
Unprepared organizations wait until it’s too late to ensure their staff has these skills, only training their staff in the midst of emergencies. They live by the mantra, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” But more strategic organizations train their staff continually, ensuring that they are prepared in the moment and never caught flat footed. They instead live by the mantra, “If it’s not broke, break it.”
So which type of organization will you be? Will you put off workforce training until there’s a crisis and you have no choice, or will you prepare in advance by providing your team with the on-going training they need to help your organization thrive at all times?
The wise will choose the latter and make sure their workforce is trained!
